IRVING, Texas - Jason Hatcher isn't sure if he should be called a vocal leader for the Dallas Cowboys. The defensive tackle's words and actions say he should.
The eighth-year pro was a steady substitute his first five years with the Cowboys before getting his break when Rob Ryan came in as defensive coordinator two years ago.
The 31-year-old has now started 25 straight games, and he's making more plays in a new scheme under Ryan's replacement, defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, and defensive line coach Rod Marinelli.
With three sacks this season, he's just one behind star pass rusher and new franchise sack leader DeMarcus Ware heading into Sunday's game at San Diego.
He says he's not worried about his future as he plays the final year of his contract.
